BPGE #28 – Civilization II

And here we are with another week of the best PC games ever. Today we kick things off with a turn based strategy game called Sid Meier’s Civilization II. As you can imagine, the first game in the series had enjoyed moderate success. It’s sequel brought in many new features and improvements which addressed many complaints with the first game which made a great overall game. However being a more recent player of the series, more specifically a Civilization IV and V player, I found myself having issues finding any reason to recommend this game to others. The problem is that while the core mechanics are good, the rest of the game doesn’t really hold up too well these days. In a way that isn’t a bad thing either, it just goes to show how much the improve every new title. In the end if I had to recommend this game I would point you to the latest release, Civilization V.
